iPhone 11 Pro Max Review
When it comes to the iPhone 11 Pro Max, it becomes difficult to find much wrong with it. The screen is excellent as the videos and games run lag-free and the battery life is long-lasting. Lastly, the triple-camera system is a topic on its own. Let’s get into a thorough review of the new Apple product.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is a tad bit wider and taller given its 6.5-inch screen size in comparison to its former version. But the grand difference is in its weight as it is 18 grams heavier and requires the help of both hands to reach up till the top of the screen.
It is among the very few phones made of stainless steel. Similarly, it is more durable compared to aluminum on most smartphones. The front and back of the phone enfold in ‘durable glass’, along with the feature of having a matte texture on the back of the phone. This largely helps in avoiding getting your phone getting smudged by unpleasant fingerprints.
The new Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max comes in the latest color of midnight green which is different from the usual silver, gold, and grey.
The 6.5-inch size OLED screen offers the extra real estate while watching videos or playing games. It uses a Super Retina XDR screen, which offers a sharp 2,688 x 1,242 resolution, exceptionally accurate colors, and remarkable brightness which can go up to 1,200 units in HDR scenes.
Additionally, Apple has an extra lens on the back of the iPhone. It’s not great, appearance-wise as the lens holes are so huge that they are too noticeable and stand out. All three lenses have a metal bezel around them.
Smart HDR is smarter. This new feature of semantic rendering that clicks numerous underexposed photos before tapping the shutter button. The camera can also understand specific parts of the image, and apply Smart HDR improvements to those parts.
The triple-camera system includes 12 megapixels for each sensor. The first f/1.8 sensor is the standard wide-angle lens. The second is the telephoto lens, with a wider f/2.0 aperture, and lastly the new ultra-wide-angle lens, with an f/2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max cameras can now shoot a video in 4K at 60 frames per second, with good stabilization and deliver smoother shots. New features include Slofies which are slow-motion selfies.
Unlimited Powered iOS 13

The ‘Dark Mode’ with the latest software update makes the OLED screen look beautiful. Swipe typing is now available, Face ID detection is faster, and stronger privacy features offer more support. Updates on the phone come instantly as soon as Apple issues them.
The battery life is phenomenal as it can last for more than a day even after having being used for a whole day; it generally depends on your usage of the phone. The charging speed has also improved since Apple is now packing an 18W fast charger along with the iPhone 11 Pro Max in the box.
